The TMJ & Sleep Therapy mini – residency was a game changer for me in how I evaluate and treat my entire patient base. I’ve always known there was a “blind-spot” in my evaluation and management of bruxers and patients with facial pain. Dr. Olmos’ course taught me more than I could ever imagine about chronic pain, airway and breathing concerns and bruxism. Most important, the material learned is supported by an unimaginable amount of researched literature references.

We have implemented Dr. Olmos’ TMD/Sleep and Ortho protocols for almost one year now. This approach has considerably raised the precision of our diagnosis, the speed of treatment and has consistently produced predictable resolution of our patient’s conditions. Implementing Dr. Olmos’ protocols has elevated our good track record to great.
